Our Troop last January (maybe December but suspect we started later than we
should)! made perhaps four or five sleds (there up in the attic of our
meeting hall so not sure how many). We had some plans we downloaded, bought a
few 2x4s or brought some in along with fairing (SP) strips, old skis, and
sheetrock screws. We brought in some battery powered drills and let the
patrols have at it. Some VERY strange structures resulted some of which did
not make it entirely whole throughout the course. BUT the scouts had a great
time designing and constructing..............isn't that what its all about.

PS One of our committee members brought in his old dog sled that he used to
race which is held together with only rawhide to show boys
first..................you can bet there contraptions did not come close
though in their mind they did!
